Hey folks,

I've been reading O'Reilly's "REST in Practice", and while I think
it's good overall conceptually, the XML examples are hard to get
through (considering the migration to JSON).

Does anyone know offhand of a good implementation of a RESTful service
implemented with JSON hyper-schema?

In particular, I think the book's discussion of specific content types
is really interesting, and I'm trying to dig deeper in to the best
implementation approach for something like:

Content-Type: application/vnd.jexy+json; schema=http://www.json-

However, I can't find anyone who's done this. I'm okay with breaking
new ground, but would rather follow established practices here if
there are any you guys know of.

One good source of inspiration for restful goodness is the pintura stack [2]. It's not so much a restful service as much as a framework for building restful services (using hyper-schema, no less). I probably safe to say pintura is the reference implementation for hyper-schema, so poke around at it, experiment with it and don't be shy about asking questions on the persevere list or in #persevere on freenode.
